I’ve taken an idea from Lloyd D Budd‘s email to me “Well Met Cave Coder” and created a “People of WordPress” link category. Never mind the fact that during his rearrange, I seem to have dropped off the end of his list… But we won’t go there ;P (I’ll still put you on my list Lloyd…) You can find it on the right hand side of my blog.
I made this list by taking a look at my WP- email folder history back to an arbitrary date. I then grabbed the names of people with 100+ contributions and by adding a few more names that stood out to me – probably because I’ve talked with them in the past or their name is unique enough that it just stuck in my brain. This, by far, is not the list of everyone that’s made significant WordPress contributions. But, if you want to dive into the mindset of people that have an influence on the future if WordPress, this is a good place to start.
In the random order my site just chose, I give you my initial People of WordPress list:
